10:01 pm
>> i'm will thomas. our neighbors to the northeast will feel the impact of that monster storm overnight. people in the path are urged to get prepared to be snowed in. many schools in new england have been closed for tomorrow. hundreds of flights have canceled. the fox 5 weather team is all over this for you. we start with sue palka with more on the effects that will be felt here at hope. >> we are getting lucky -- home. >> we are getting lucky with that one. think back three years ago to when we were dealing with back to back blizzards. that's what they're getting ready for in new england tonight. let me show you where the system is now, two pieces, a southern branch that will be a major player, but the moisture you see over chicago will also play a big part because those two pieces will get together and form one gigantic storm. the reason it won't happen for us is it will be too far north when those two storms phase together. we are going to book end friday
10:02 pm
with some wintery precip. as we look at radar just down to our south we have light rain moving toward our area. when this begins across the region probably after midnight, it could be a little bit of sleet or freezing rain and we do have some advisories to tell you about. we'll have blizzard warnings in effect for, oh, my, massachusetts, connecticut, rhode island and all those pink areas are winter storm warnings, but we're most worried about the blizzard warning and what about this? we have some winter weather advisories from midnight until 10 a.m. in loudoun county, frederick, northern fauquier. you may get maybe 1/2-inch of a little combination of snow, sleet and freezing rain overnight before it changes to light rain only. this is not our storm, so we'll be fortunate to see it will be a little messy mix for some areas early in the morning and then just some light rain. now we want to talk about what it's going to be doing in new
10:03 pm
england. the most snow bost upon has ever had is 27 -- boston has ever had is 27 1/2 inches. gary mcgrady, you think they'll get that tomorrow? >> especially, sue, west of boston looks to be the bull's eye. could boston get the most snow they've ever had from one single storm? it depends i think the track of the storm and if they do mix some rain into this if the storm gets too close to the coast. this is tomorrow at 7:00. listen, if you have travel plans up to the northeast, if you're not there early, early tomorrow morning, i really think you can forget about it because new york will be closed down. so is boston, anywhere in between. you watch the storm move up the coast. it looks like rain and a mix at the coast. as you go inland, it's going to be snowing and blowing and blizzard conditions. this will last probably some 12 to 18 hours of solid snow for the folks up to the north and northeast and at times the heaviest snow there could be as
10:04 pm
as 2 to 3 inches per hour. so definitely blizzard conditions throughout new england. you see from boston back to the west into central massachusetts down towards providence, that's the bull's eye where there could be 18 to 24 inches of snow, locally a bit more heavy. as we come down to the southeast towards new york city still forecasting between 8 inches and a foot there. this will linger into saturday morning and then the wind is going to kick up as well. this will end up not only being an epic storm, but it's going to be a very dawning russ storm. impact will be felt for weeks -- dangerous storm. impact will be felt for weeks up that way. >> at home you can track the forecast 24/7 with the fox 5 weather app. if you can't get to a tv, we're now streaming our newscasts live on your smartphone. log onto www.myfoxdc.com for more information. the owner of a lorton's sub

10:06 pm
the bathroom and was denied. some think he may have slipped into the sub shop and the set it on fire possibly with a molotov cocktail that backfired. reese says he never saw anyone, but clearly wasn't alone in the shop. >> either somebody stepped on me running in this blaze of fire or dragged me to the doorway. >> reporter: not before he was severely burned. >> now you have burns down your arm, down your back, across your face. somebody was trying to hurt you. >> i don't have that kind of enemies. >> reporter: but his shop has been targeted before. a week after he stopped a guy from painting graffiti on a doctor's office someone painted up his shop. in october a vandal got in through the attic and ransacked the shop. each time he reopened and continued to serve up his steak and cheese sandwiches with a smile. >> you can come in here any given time and be in your worst mood and grunt while i'm trying to talk to you, but before you

cop seeking revenge on the law enforcement community. authorities found his burned out truck and footprints in the snow outside los angeles, but now he's still on the run. we'll begin with what we know and then we're bringing in a local police chief to talk about this case. a fired los angeles cop now a suspected killer, the 33-year- old once sworn to serve and protect is christopher dorner considered armed, extremely dangerous and willing to kill anyone. police say he's terrorizing law enforcement in southern california bent on revenge for being terminated. >> of course, he knows what he's doing. we trained him. he was also a member of the armed forces. it is extremely worrisome and scary especially to the police officers involved. >> reporter: police say dorner is the suspect in the murders of an assistant college basketball coach, monica quan, and her fiance.
10:09 pm
they were sitting in their car at their l.a. condo complex when it happened. turns out quan was the daughter of a retired happened captain who represented dorner at the board of rights hearing that led to his firing for making false statements. police say the killings were carried out in an active revenge outlined in a lengthy manifesto dorner post online blaming quan's father for losing his job back in 2008. in part of the post dorner writes he knew he would be vilified by the lapd and that unfortunately this is a necessary evil that i do not enjoy but must partake and complete for substantial change to occur within the lapd and reclaim my name. he went on to write, "i will utilize every bit of small arms training, demolition, ordnance and survival training i've been given. you have misjudged a sleeping giant." detectives also believe dorner is the gunman in the shooting of a police officer in corona,
10:10 pm
california. a bullet grazed an officer's head there and in nearby riverside police say dorner ambushed two officers on routine patrol at a stoplight and opened fire using a rifle. one died and the other is seriously hurt. >> this is a vendetta against all of southern california law enforcement. >> reporter: the names of several officers and their family members are being withheld because dorner made it clear he considers police and their families fair game. so how does a manhunt like this work? we're joined now live by montgomery county police chief thomas maker manger. chief, good to have -- manger. chief, good to have you with us tonight. you were police consider fairfax county during the serial sniper shootings .
10:11 pm
>> i'm sure in this case everyone is working together. you've got to work together and share information so that you can hopefully get a resolution as quickly as possible. >> the accused, christopher dorner, is promising to do more harm. this guy knows the tactics and training of police. john alan mohammed was a member of the military. i'm sure this complicates things for you. >> it does, but there's three kind of searches going on simultaneously right now you've got the very public search, i guess you'd call it the be on the lookout search where the public and law enforcement are looking to see if they can spot this man whether in a car or in public. you've got a targeted search by investigators who are following up on what i'm sure are hundreds of tips coming in from the public about sightings or maybe information they have about this individual and then you've got a more stealth search that's going on as well
10:12 pm
where you've got folks that don't look like police officers that are hoping that they can spot this individual before he spots them. >> let's talk about that public appeal. i imagine besides using the media as a tool, you would even use say electronic billboards, if possible. >> i'm sure there's many strategies that are being used. in fact, even in the 10 years since the sniper case the technology has come a long way in terms of providing additional tools that law enforcement can use to hopefully track this individual down. >> well, good insight. montgomery county police chief thomas manger, thanks for weighing in on the search for a killer in california. we are all hoping they get this guy soon. >> absolutely. certainly our condolences go out to the families of those officers that were slain. >> i share that with you, sir. thank you. for decades football fans have been singing hail to the redskins, but some people say it's time for the team to change its name.

10:17 pm
neighbors for using that word making it unacceptable, that's when things will change. >> reporter: the discussion on stereotypes drawing a diverse crowd most supportive of name change. >> it is personal to us in knowing it's a big deal. i feel like we should just get the information out more. >> the connection with the african american experience and slavery, all of it really comes down to touching at the heart and making a difference person to person. >> reporter: they equate the team's use of an indian sports mascot to a black faced character considered racially offensive to the african americans. >> this is the n word and how can you sit up on the podium by the judge people yelling and screaming the n word basically and cheering? how can you do that in the nation's capital? >> reporter: it's an issue washington's lifelong football fan andre holland said he never thought about until attending the forum wearing a team hat and said he was challenged what the team name meant. >> i'm not a racist person, so
10:18 pm
who am i to keep wearing something like this and it means something racist? who am i? washington redskins, i in every knew that. >> reporter: over the years the team owners opposed the name change citing tradition, but others say money is the real reason. washington's football team is one of the highest grossing teams in the league. panelists are urging people to take several measures to push change including boycotting the team and its sponsors, protesting and simply stopping the use of what they call the r word. it's been successful in other places and hope for the same victory here. >> the redskins organization is not responding to the forum or demands for a name change. in the last decade 2/3 of sports teams using native american names or logos have changed them. >> the name that remains controversial, thanks. we want to hear your thoughts on. this we posted the question on our facebook page. here it is. washington redskins an offensive name or part of a tradition? chris wrote they've had that name almost 80 years, so why

northeastern maryland, you might get enough to accumulate. as we've said, this won't be our blizzard. it will be up through eastern new england, but it was a close call and we'll have a little bit of light mixing going on. that means rain but also sleet mixing in, maybe a little freezing rain and farther west there could be snow as this begins in the overnight hours. for most of you i don't think it will be a problem and as this changes over to light rain during the day, it will probably take away all the sleet elements unless you're really far to the west along interstate 81. i don't think we'll get a lot of rain out of this, but there will be somewhat heavier rain south and east of interstate 95 during the day tomorrow. i would not be surprised if some of you living to the west have many dry hours tomorrow. then this could wrap around especially for maryland and in particular, northeastern maryland as some light snow starting after 7:00 or 8:00 tomorrow night. we'll be watching that part of the story as well. you know there are widespread
10:47 pm
blizzard warnings for eastern new england up to maine and in the purple these are winter storm warnings and winter weather advisories. that's what we've got for montgomery, for howard, up to frederick, washington, can loudoun county, northern fauquier and points north and west. we're thinking there could be a small coating, something under an inch, mostly on grassy areas of a combination of crunchy sleet and snow and a bit of freezing rain with the rain. everywhere else you might see the mix, but the temperatures are warm enough we think that will melt on contact. here is where our light rain is now. it is moving up from the south, not quite to fredericksburg yet, but it's moved into lexington park. west of charlottesville you begin to see mixing going on or even some snow. along interstate 81 pretty good chance for that and up through the mason dixon line best chance for seeing some of that. there's some good rain in here and probably getting sleet with the heavier returns down through south side virginia and into north carolina and, of course, it's this storm that will grab energy from this
10:48 pm
system somewhere off new jersey or even maybe southern delaware to create the really strong and deepening storm that will wallop new england tomorrow night and saturday morning. for us temperatures 38 degrees, so even if we get a little wintery mix here or down to quantico, we think a lot of that will melt on the pavement, but i'm sure the road crews will be out there and during the day it's just light rain. futurecast, let's go forward in time, take this to the morning rush hour. look how much the heavy rain is developing down through eastern north carolina, southeastern virginia. we'll have some rain for the morning rush hour, maybe a little mixing, some sleet ticking on your windshield. it often slows down the commute, but the snow will be out there toward allegany county west of hagerstown and winchester. let's go to the noon hour. look how much of d.c. is dry. here's the dry slot as our stops tries to develop off the coast. so many hours tomorrow afternoon probably dry but now as it gets to the coast, grabs the energy from the other
10:49 pm
northern stream system, look at that. it's trying to wrap in a little snow across northeastern maryland tomorrow night into 11:00. actually our-month-old tries to keep it going into -- model tries to keep it going into saturday morning. look at how many snow it's predicting or boston. everything is continuing to suggest this will be a historic storm for those folks up there. we wanted to show you some of the snow totals, the heaviest we're thinking 18 to 24 inches especially west of boston notice the plus sign. down through hartford 12 to 18, new york city 6 to 12 and maybe an inch or 2 for northeastern maryland, northern delaware and parts of the jersey shore. here may be a coating to perhaps some snow showers for us tomorrow night and into saturday. let's wrap it up with your fox 5 accuweather seven-day forecast. about 44 degrees tomorrow, might be a little cooler in spots and again not particularly wet, but it will be book ended by a little bit
10:50 pm
of wintery mix in the morning and some light snow tomorrow night. you know what you'll notice about saturday? big winds in addition to crazy pictures from new england. it will be pretty cold around here, but we're still thinking sunday will be about 50 degrees and most of next week a lot warmer than the next two days. >> find something to do inside on saturday. >> good idea if you don't want to deal with the wind. an incredible story of survival out of 10 it, rebecca roberts was hit by a tree -- tennessee. rebecca roberts was hit by a tree when it came crashing down on her home. the community chipped in immediately donating clothes and toys for her 5-year-old daughter and 7-month-old son. her focus now, getting back to her old self. >> i don't want to miss out on stuff with my son that i got to see with my daughter because of me being hurt. so i've got to hurry up and get back to my normal self for

10:52 pm
down to be top 20 is probably the hardest thing we've ever done. >> we now have to focus on the talent and who really has it and who we think can stand the test of time and walk the distance. >> reporter: simon cowell used to say if you forget the words, you're finished, but this group is a bit more lenient. >> i'm trying to figure out where we cut slack for people because forgetting word doesn't make you less of an artist. it really doesn't. >> i try to encourage everybody if they did forget the lyrics, just do an ad lib. do a riff. do something different. you've got a whole group behind you. that's how i look at it. >> reporter: mariah improvises when she forgets the lyrics. >> i would rather can we just do something different. do whatever you're going to do, but don't give up and put the mic down. so it was like oh, wow, they
